‘I would die for Rangers. I really would die for them. If you told me I could see them win the Champions League, and then I’d have 24 hours to get drunk and enjoy it, but then at the end of that extra day I had to die, I’d do it.’

Supporters of Glasgow Rangers FC display a passion not often seen in the sporting world, but their loyalty was tested last season as the club found itself stuck in Scottish football’s lowest professional division. The demotion, due largely to financial mismanagement, did not deter avid fans, who set new attendance records for the 3rd division.
